Vintage Inspired Box : Creative Mondays Blog Hop

Vintage Inspired Box : Creative Mondays Blog hop Week 12…

I started Creative Mondays to give me a reason to get more Creative.

This week I made my first Jewellery box…

I had something delivered through the post but thought the box was just to good to throw away.So I cut up a old book into random triangles,rectangles and squares.I used wallpaper paste to glue them on so it wouldn’t dry all gooey like flour and water….

Waited a few days until completely dry and printed a photo of me and my 2 youngest children off the computer in sepia.

Then I dyed some lace using a tea bag rinsed and left to dry…

Then I got creative with lace,beads buttons and my picture.I also decorated inside.I am very pleased with my first proper ( that’s not just kids ideas ) craft project and cant wait for it to dry properly so I can put some things inside….

Whats everyone else been up to this week? Can not wait to find out…..
